1:30 pm
under a 1970s law that was designed for monopoly telephones. it regulates costs, rates, terms, conditions. even regulates what information can be put into a telephone book. that is not be innovative internet that we think of and we want to see flourish in the united states. so i think the fcc is on a great role. we all worry about net neutrality, the wireless industry welcomes net neutrality rules and i'm really hopeful and optimistic
1:31 pm
that we can see congress there. >> would you like to see a new telecom bill? is it time to revamp the fcc? >> certainly we need to think about broadband and how we want broadband to be regulated. >> what about the fcc itself? >> think of it as taking apart the congress needs to step in here. >> what are the other thoughts, we agree that net neutrality and open and free internet but what are the elements that would make up a sustainable set of net neutrality rules? the three rules of no blocking, no throttling, no great pay prioritization. what about the standard which fcc has made is a call to police, what specifically would make it up? >> there's no blocking, no throttling and transparency, we ought to look at pay prioritization because i do think all entrepreneurs, we should talk about this. all entrepreneurs should be able to have access if they wanted but we are starting to talk about automated cars and automated health monitoring,
1:32 pm

1:33 pm
that unlicensed spectrum is available for wi-fi and other uses. what do you expect out of her policy on spectrum? >> you want the same thing we all want which is as far as spectrum goes, we need more licensed spectrums, we need more unlicensed spectrum and we probably need more shared spectrum future work, were going to need all of it so their knowledgeable and great advocates for that as well as the rest of the commission. we have a knowledgeable and great group of commissioners there. >> go ahead, margaret. >> thank you. how do you think, i'm curious how you think the trump administration is doing so far on spectrum issues, specifically i'm thinking david is on track to leave the nci a but the commission is not fully yet so do you think this has delayed in getting people and he places and hurting spectrum priorities? >> i think part of the new administration is putting
